If you just applied recently, I wouldn't put in a request now because when you apply your already considered for the amex first and if you don't qualify they then consider you for the store card.  Unless they are somehow using the credit pull they already have, applying for the amex card is a hard pull

I think that's only true if he applied in store. Online applications seem to only yield a store card.

Re: Asked for Macy's store card upgrade

thanks everyone for making me more aware that it is a hard pull since i've had my card since 2006.

 

If i was to get a macy's amex card, would the date opened be the orignal 2006 date since they are both macy's cards (going off of what amex does with backdating) or todays's date if i was to get it now. thanks
